    Change the language on my Japanese Wii to English?

    I'm a Brit living in Japan and would like to know if it is possible to change the language on my Japanese Wii to English. Is there such a setting? I'd really appreciate any help.

    I've got the same problem. Non native Japanese with a Japanese Wii. Unfortunately I followed the guide to changing the language according to Nintendo's site, but on the page three section where it should be the options "Language", "Country" and "Wii System Memory", there are only 2 options to select. They are both in kanji so I can't read them, although having made the choices the one on the top tries to connect to the internet, and the other one appears to be the memory one.

    Can someone verify that the Japanese Wii's ONLY operate in Japanese and have no language changing ability?

    Are Japanese Wiis black?


    How many licks does it take to get to a tootsie roll center of a tootsie pop?

    Spoiler Alert!

    Directions as to whether you can change the language from Japanese? or whether they are going to start doing other colours for the Wii?

    Thanks

    No they won't.

    I too am in Japan with a Japanese Wii. Fortunately I can read and write enough Japanese to email Nintendo, although not well enough to play Fire Emblem (Can't understand anyone but Eddy, he speaks nice easy modern Japanese) or to read all the screens in Zelda before the end of the year.

    I'll pop the reply in Japanese at the end of the post but basically they say (very politely) that Wii's built for sale in the Japanese market are meant for Japanese people and have nothing but the Japanese language. (anyone in Japan knows about the general xenophobia here, if you don't look, sound and read like a Japanese you don't count in the greater scheme of things)

    They offered to help with anything I don't understand, so I'll ask them about changing the news channel or internet channel to the English versions (all I need is a download link for the wii I think) but I don't hold out much hope.

    Japanese reply from Nintendo:

    ユーソーセクシ様からいただいたメールについてお答えいたします。



    誠に恐れ入りますが、日本向けに販売・製造しております

    日本版のWii本体は、 日本国内でのご利用を前提とさせて

    いただいており、日本語表記のみとなっております。

    何卒ご了承ください。
